Misty


Misty is the youngest member of The Crew.  She was added to the mix in June of 2oo6 at eight weeks old.  She was adopted from the same shelter as Max.  Her Mom and Dad had originally picked another boy kitten, but then found out that he was spoken for.  They went back again and found Misty.  She was being slowly introduced to the others, while living in the bathroom, when she got very sick.  Luckily, none of the other cats caught her virus, but this delayed her introduction for quite some time.  Once she was well, she started tearing around the house and pouncing on tails.  She soon bonded with Tipper and the two of them spend quite a bit of time together.  Misty's very favorite toy is feather-butt mousies.  She plays with then endlessly and loses them under the furniture quite often.  Misty takes good care of her mousies and feeds them occasionally by dropping them in the food bowl, as you can see in the picture.  The other three cats are not too fond of this behavior, but Misty guards her feather-butt until she is sure that it has gotten enough to eat.

                                  Misty just loves her feather-butt mousies.
                                  She chases them all over the housie.
                                          She gives them food,
                                          Though it seems rude,
                                  By in the food bowl dropping her mousies.

Yes, Jan has had a couple of butt-droppers in the water bowl in the past. But none of us do it.
